This is the family tree of the human race: When God created the human race, he made it godlike, with a nature akin to God.
He created both male and female and blessed them, the whole human race.
When Adam was 130 years old, he had a son who was just like him, his very spirit and image, and named him Seth.
After the birth of Seth, Adam lived another 800 years, having more sons and daughters.
Adam lived a total of 930 years. And he died.
When Seth was 105 years old, he had Enosh.
After Seth had Enosh, he lived another 807 years, having more sons and daughters.
Seth lived a total of 912 years. And he died.
When Enosh was ninety years old, he had Kenan.
After he had Kenan, he lived another 815 years, having more sons and daughters.
